Handmade Gift Ideas From Etsy

Etsy is the perfect place for quirky, homemade, sustainable handmade gifts, but it can also be pretty overwhelming to find the perfect present for that special someone, so here are Handmade Gift Ideas from Etsy.

I’ve done all the hard work for you by narrowing down some of the best one-of-a-kind gift ideas and best of all, no need to break the bank.

Handmade gifts come in two varieties, the ones you make or DIY and the ones you buy from a small maker. It’s one of the reasons I love Etsy so much. I also love them beasue they are  the first major online shopping destination to offset 100% of carbon emissions from delivery. Now, every time you purchase an item on Etsy, we balance out the carbon emissions by creating positive environmental impact.

HO HO HO! Let’s get to it.

 

1. For The Winter Lover: A Chunky Knit Blanket 

Okay this blanket is so divine. Who else love this as much as I do? I spotted this on Apartment Therapy and thought what a perfect gift idea. Made with hand spun natural wool and is great in the winter time and also in the shoulder seasons. It’s a classic look with natural fibers that will be a family heirloom that everyone will fight over.

It comes in 5 different natural colors. There is no added dyes, beautiful neutral shades that will add texture and warmth to all decor styles. All products are created, one piece at a time and they are super soft.

Spinning strengthens the yarn so it doesn’t shed and is washable in the machine.

 

2. For The Hostess with the Mostess: Make it Personal 

If you know someone who is a big fan of hosting cheese and wine parties at home, then you buy a custom cheese board. This personalized bamboo cheese board is a great addition to any kitchen and I love the fact that you can add any text you want.

 

3. For The Manscaper: Expandable Waxed Canvas Dopp Kit

Perfect for the man on the go or the workout buff. Hand-built in the USA, this durable, luxury, waxed canvas dopp kit is made to last for generations and go with you wherever you travel. You’ll feel the quality of our American craftsmanship when you order your new toiletry bag.

The removable and washable covers feature a heavy-duty brass YKK zipper closure with a lip to tuck the zipper head out of sight. They are fully lined and have overlocked seams for durability. The inserts have channels sewn in, which helps maintain an even distribution of the super soft down alternative inside. Unlike other pet beds, these won’t get flat or lumpy over time. And best of all, they’re uber comfortable for your pet!

 

7. For the Coffee Lover: Couple Portrait Mug

These are so adorable, colourful and packed full of personality. Each custom portrait will be hand-drawn individually from pictures, no pre-made template will be used… making it a truly one-of-a-kind gift. Each portrait can take several hours from start to finish. Once the final design has been approved, the illustration will then be printed professionally on the surface of camp mug, making it a very unique and practical gift.
